MAINTENANCE BY CONTRACT--A STATE OF THE ART REVIEW

Widespread discussion of the maintenance-by-contract concepts originated in 1977 at the annual American Public Works Congress Program. Few in the audience were convinced that the concepts were workable. However, during the last 6 years several maintenance organizations have demonstrated that the concept has great economic potential when properly implemented. The reasons for the growing interest by maintenance managers in contracting for maintenance is outlined and an approach is recommended for identifying the savings potential of the concept. Common implementation problems are discussed and guidelines are provided for establishing maintenance by contract.
